Iím exploring some options in the world of axle swaps. From what I have learned thus far if one is going to use the Artec bracketry on junkyard tons (D60 & 14b) one must also have control arms with flexible joints on both ends.

If this is the case what would be some good control arm kits to look at?

Is this an opertune time to go for a long arm kit?

Any one that uses Currie Johnny Joints is good quality.

Iíve heard Johnny Joints are the way to go, so Evo long arm or is there something with the Artec setup that would prevent that from being a good idea.

I have the tier 4 by Core 4x4. Definitely worth every penny. Joints on both ends.

You got any pics of them on your rig? Are the double adjustable?

Another vote for CORE. I have the Tier 3, with joint on one end, but the Tier 4 has them on both ends. The price is reasonable, and the quality shows.

The pic with the splinted arm is stock. You can see the size, and look how thick it is. These will last

Another vote for Core 4x4 but, it looks like OP is looking for long arms, I definitely would with 1 tons. I donít think Core makes long arms but I remember asking them if they do when I ordered my rear upper in Dec. They said theyíre working on it but, no definitive dates on release yet.
That said, I would probably just stick with EVO for long arms.
